Do you have a business plan for the New Year?
If you do already have a plan, would you like free feedback from practicing real estate professionals around North America?
If you don't have one yet would you like some help getting started?
If you answered yes to either of the last two questions please consider participating in AR's 2008 Open Source Business Planning day, being held this Friday.
This Friday featured post positions will be reserved for blog posts by AR members that detail their 2008 business plans.
1. Please tag your business plan posts: "2008 business plan".
2. Feel free to publish your business plan anytime between now and Friday.
Question and Answers:
Q: Why is this being scheduled only three days away. That is not enough time for me to create a business plan!
A: If you don't already have a business plan, we already know that you are likely a procrastinator and would likely wait until the night before it's due to work on it anyways. So three days is plenty. Plus there is no time like the present!
Q: Why would I want to share all of my secrets?
A: "What goes around comes around!" The most successful people in life freely share their big secrets to help make others successful. Plus, success is still 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration.
Q: Should I put my actual financial projections in the plan?
A: Up to you. Glenn Kelman recently published something similar on Guy Kawasaki's blog and used made up numbers.
